ABC Wednesday, I for Israel
Last week I went away for a short holiday to Israel, where I am staying at a lodge belonging to Dina's neighbour. Dina met me at the airport and we are going to see first the surroundings and lateron Jerusalem. All photos are not mine as I haven't got the chance to file them in my library yet.
Wikipedia says:"The State of Israel is a parliamentary republic in the Middle East, along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east, and Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and it contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel is defined as a Jewish and Democratic State in its Basic Laws and is the world's only Jewish-majority state.
Following the 1947 United Nations plan to partition Palestine, on 14 May 1948 David Ben-Gurion, the Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization and president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared Israel a state independent from the British Mandate for Palestine."
With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar or Here. This week we are looking for words beginning with I.
I shan't be able to answer comments until the 23rd or 24th March because of this holiday in Israel. We shall be in northern Israel this week and there will be no time to work on the computer. So dear friends I hope you'll excuse me for the time being. My posts are scheduled.
